wednesday night. doesn't he? >> he's going to, i mean, every time mitt romney has been confronted in this campaign with one of these moments, he has come through in the debate and performed extraordinarily well. laying out his vision very clearly, and contrasting himself and his vision to whoever the opponent was at that time. when we get to thursday morning, you'll be saying it's a brand-new race with 33 days to go. >> the more we see of governor romney the more voters are going to like him, that hasn't happened yet. on the one hand he has to be assertive with the president but likable with voters. how does that happen? >> be truthful. if you tell the truth about what's going on in our country, people are going to understand that's critical of the president's stewardship, but also to lay out a positive and hopeful vision for what the future can be for our children and grandchildren under a romney administration. i think he can do both. romney can walk and chew gum at the same time. i'm not worried. >> how do you handicap president obama as a debater? >> listen, i love this stuff.
last night as polls show a tight race in nevada and north carolina. romney's only two points behind president obama there. but seven points behind in new hampshire. >> now your job is in danger. >> reporter: both sides came out swinging with new campaign ads thursday. >> if i could sit down with you in your living room or around the kitchen table, here's what i'd say -- >> reporter: what he said in virginia beach was something new, something he calls economic patriotism. >> an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> reporter: romney also in virginia told veterans the nation's debt is more than just numbers on paper. >> trillion dollar deficits. that debt is owned by somebody. someone holds that. that puts america in a position of economic risk. >> reporter: but even supporters are split on how romney can win this race. >> there is more fire in the belly. >> he needs to stick with the facts. it's all about the economy. >> reporter: more than half the country already started voting days before the first presi
and "wall street journal" that show a tight race between the president and mitt romney. and we're looking through the eyes of the "saturday night live" crew. a special campaign edition later on in the show. first, let us get to the news live here at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in the center of new york city. we do begin with new developments out of libya. the a.p. reporting the u.s. state department is pulling more staffers out of its embassy in the capital of tripoli over security fears. the move is expected to be temporary until the security situation improves. the embassy was already operating with limited staff following the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi that left four americans dead. it is now been 17 days since that attack. sources say fbi agents sent to investigate the murders still have not been able to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear tha
about what happened in the last four years. >> kimberly: that is not what ann romney has been hearing. she spoke to greta last night. >> i will tell you four years ago, women that would speak to me had a lot of different concerns on their mind. this time around, it is nearly universal. that they are talking about jobs, the economy, their future. they are talking about debt, entitlement and everything that is so critical we make sure that we get ahold on this economy. >> kimberly: eric, wouldn't it seem to make a lot of sense that women would support the candidacy of mitt romney because hof his experience with the economy, with jobs, with trying to put food on the table, money in the bank? >> eric: again, i don't understand why people are voting for barack obama. women, single women are voting for barack obama overwhelmingly. look what is going on. we talked about it how many times? 500,000 fewer jobs held by women in america this time around versus four years ago when he took over. the unemployment among african-americans, 97% of african-americans are going to vote for barack obama. b
of the line, and that is what should keep mitt romney up at night. that really puts the onus on what happens in the debates and i don't believe that at this point in the game, that romney can do something on his own that will change the course of this race. you basically need obama to make a big mistake, which at this point in the race, what you need is three things. something has to be important, it has to be new and it has to be easily digestible. the 47% statement is all three of those things. >> yep. >> you have to have something on obama's side that is comparable to that and it is hard to imagine what that could be. >> kristen soltis, it may be coincidence but since that 47% story broke, it was so damaging to mitt romney that you just get a sense now that he's got to do something pretty impactive and powerful to get that off the agenda, because the one area that we all believe he had the advantage over barack obama was the economy. suddenly in one fell swoop, you have a guy who has basically written off half the country as a bunch of scrounging victims. that is not good. >> well, i agre
. welcome to new hampshire. >> chris: thank you. what does governor romney need to do wednesday night in the first debate? >> he needs to give the american people the choice that we are offering. that is what we are doing. we owe the country a cheer choice of a different future. we can either have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or we can have a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. stick with the failed policies of the last four years for the next four years or get a brighter future. stagnation versus growth. dependency versus opportunity and upper mobility. that is the classic choice and clear difference that we are offering and what we hope people get out of this this debate is that choice. >> chris: it is interesting because for the last six months the romney campaign said this is a referendum on barack obama's record and now you are saying it is a choice. >> it is not a change in strategy. a phase of the campaign we now entered into. i think it is important. the president is trying to paper over his problems and has been trying to mislead and distort the r

debate tomorrow night. thank you so much. the president and governor romney may be taking time off the campaign trail today for debate practice but the vice presidental candidates are not. vice president joe biden spoke to voters in charlotte, north carolina a short time ago about the concerns he has over his opponent's plan for medicare, while at wong man's paul ryan's event in iowa today things took an emotional term when a veteran asked him about his social security benefits and why the government taxes the only source of income for a man who dedicated his life to defending his country. >> i served in the air force in 65 straight out of high school, and i learned in the military -- [applause] >> -- the skills that i had to take me through life. i served in grenada, and i served in iran, and i live off of social security. i live off a thousand dollars a month, and i cannot understand why this country that i gave my life for feels that they should tax me twice for social security. they already taxed me for that and they take a third of it back when they give me that check. >> you

members before sunday's game. >> with the first presidential debate just five days away, mitt romney's handlers are trying to lower expectations. the two candidates go toe to toe wednesday night in denver. romney's longtime adviser beth myers releasing a memo outlying reasons why the gop challenger is likely to finish second. she says the president is "a uniquely gifted speaker and one of the most talented political communicators in modern history." >>> two more battleground states leaning towards obama. according to the latest cnn polls. in nevada likely voters favor the president by three points over mitt romney, 49% to 46%. meantime, in virginia, the president has an even wider lead, 49% to 44%. >> sledgehammer smash and grab. the fbi has released dramatic video of suspects who robbed a saks fifth avenue store. investigators say he ran in the store an hour before closing time and used sledge hammers to destroy a display case and $5,000 reward for these suspects. >>> all clear after a bomb scare caused a brief evacuation of a terminal. they found a grenade-like item inside the lugg
high the stakes are for mitt romney in wednesday night's debate. his team, of course, is trying to lower expectations. and we're going to tell you what your favorite brand of beer says about your politics. all that and more coming up in about 30 minutes or so. president obama, mitt romney face-to-face as american voters weighing their choice. the first presidential debate wednesday night. you got to watch that live 7:00 eastern. cnn and cnn.com. >>> the man believed to be behind the fictitious anti-islam film that set off a wave of protests in the muslim world apparently has a long list of fake names, and that is what is keeping nikoula bassely nikoula in jail today. he is facing bail in california. there are at least 17 phony names that he used. couldn't even decide which name to tell the judge in yesterday's bail hearing. well, she's got some information. of course, let's be clear here. he is being taken into custody. it doesn't have anything necessarily to do with the film, is that right? >> technically. that's the important word here, suzanne. technically he is not. he is be
republicans are saying that if he does not have a game-changing night, that the trajectory of this campaign will not change, and that's going to be bad for romney campaign. >> right. each of them have really sort of gotten their practice in, one could argue. we talked wins and losses, expectations. both sides basically trying to play it down a little buiit. it's better to manage expectations than to not accomplish expectations. what do you think the voters are expecting? are they expecting something civilized? are they expecting attacks from each separate candidate, amy? >> i think they're expecting their issues to be addressed and to be addressed thoroughly and convincingly. but i love debates, because you have these completely unexpected moments, like when al gore, in his debates in 2000 with george bush, was sighing and rolling his eyes and walked out onstage with this crazy clown face, and that ended up sort of overwhelming the debate, another debate, where with hillary clinton, when her competitor was running for the senate, crossed the stage in a physical image of intimidation. i thin
for mitt romney if he takes advantage of it next wednesday night, to turn the momentum around. he not only has to win this debate but has to change the dynamics in this race. we know he's going to show up prepared, disciplined and aggressive, even tim pawlenty said that he's as good as it gets when it comes to debating. but the question is whether or not he's going to be able to talk to the american people specifically about what his plans are for this country. that's been a huge deficit for him over the course of this campaign. no specifics, no details. so i think that is part of the burden he carries next wednesday night. >> i suppose one of the problems for you is that barack obama is in the strange position of being the quite clear favorite. i don't think many incumbent presidents have that going into debates but people say i saw a poll this morning, he's up nearly 60% of americans believe obama will win the debates. that's always a rather precarious place to go into a debate, isn't it, as the clear favorite because expectation levels can often exceed performance. >> that is definitely
over and over. it is in the late-night jokes, mitt romney's a loser, and that is exactly what the president wants is for him to say that this guy is lost. megyn: chris stirewalt, thank you. there are questions today about why the two biggest news wire services in the country just to send out this photo of benjamin netanyahu at the united nations yesterday. take a look. okay, this is ahead of the jewish state. the associated press offering newspapers and websites -- this picture from the israeli prime minister's speech. why would they do that? showing him raising his left arm that is uncomfortably similar to that of adolf hitler. the man was gesturing from behind the podium. keep that in mind. and reuters offered a similar picture. the head of the app anti-defamation league is calling the two photos ugly, disgusting and offensive. the reaction to the united nations speech by prime minister netanyahu, making the case, drawing the redline at iran's nuclear program and using an explosive image. we will see what people are saying on the streets of israel and debate whether this wil
and the officials ended its stand-off late last night. after the nfl agreed to raise the officials pay everyoand pro their current pension plan. >>> recent polls show that gop candidate mitt romney is trailing president obama by 3% to 7%. another pivotal state, iowa drawing attention today. because it's the first of a so-called battleground states to begin early voting. strategies and researchers project that more than one in three voters will cast their ballots before election day. election officials confirmed the request for absentee ballots in some areas are already up 30% over 2008. >>> he illustrated cartoon bombs, a bright red line and a warning to the world. a warning about iran. today israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu described his fears about iran producing a nuclear bomb. now, the international community is reacting. danielle lee has our story. >>> from a fight over the west bank to fears about a nuclear program. benjamin netanyahu spoke at the united nations. >> a great battle is being raged. >> reporter: just one day after mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the u.s. and the west of inti
. outside of akron. carl cammeron with the romney camp in toledo. still disputing many of these recent polls, right? >> as we said last night. they believe that so many of the public polls skew to democrats because the sample of democrats is more than what they believe is representative of the actual electorate on election day november 6th. and today romney camp was making the argument they have also been grossly outspent. president obama's campaign has been putting much much more money on the air. advertising will soon even up and that they say will close the polls as well, shep. >> shepard: what is governor romney attempting to turn things around in ohio they do acknowledge they are not winning there. >> sure. they recognize there is a big challenge ahead of them. to that end the last couple of days, they have made him available much more aggressively. six or seven network interviews in the last several days there will be a lot more of that we're told. mr. romney getting much more raucous response from the crowd. rhetoric amped up. much more aggressive at president obama. essentially sort
night shows is having a little fun at mitt romney's direct to camera ad. let's take a look. >> the ad is called too many americans. and the goal seems to be to show that romney does indeed care about americans who are struggling financially. and he does a pretty good job with it. >> too many americans are struggling to find work in today's economy. too many of those who are working are living paycheck to paycheck. more americans are living in poverty than when president obama took office. and 15 million more are on food stamps. my plan will create 12 million new jobs over the next four years. >> so alice, instead of trying to make people see that he feels their pain, if you were advising mitt romney, do you think that he should proudly pick up that lobster and say, if you want to be rich like me, vote for me, because i can get you there, i've got the plan to do it? >> well, that was certainly a scale, but i think if i were advising the romney campaign i would encourage them to continue what they're doing, which is focusing on jobs and the economy. and stressing his plan all along has
more jobs will vote for me. >> that first debate will take place wednesday night in denver. >>> president obama will stay here in the district today. he has three campaign events scheduled in d.c. the president also campaigned yesterday in virginia. he was 200 miles from romney in virginia beach. >>> the nfl referees are back on the job. the regular refs received a standing ovation when we took the field before last night's ravens-bengals game in baltimore. the honeymoon was short-lived, as you might imagine. the crowd quickly booed when the hometown ravens were called for an unsportsmanlike penalty. this was the first game since the nfl and players union reached a tentative agreement on a new labor contract. nfl commissioner roger goodell apologized to fans for the lockout. >> we're sorry to bring our fans through that, sorry to bring the general public through that. that's, unfortunately, part of labor management disputes. >> the referees union plans to vote today or tomorrow on the labor deal. >> a texas man faces up to five years in prison after admitting he tried to ex
that it was not a critical issue. >> bill: let me move on. joe, let me ask you this. hang on a second. >> it was romney making statements before he knew the facts at all late that night. >> he turned out to be right, didn't he? >> bill: joe, let me ask you. do you think that our representatives at the united nations should have picked up with israel when adolf ahmadinejad talks about destroying israel again? do you think it's appropriate for our delegation to sit there during that moment? >> i think the delegation -- you know, i don't know the answer to that one. i mean, i think that the -- that the administration has made some mistakes, but i don't know that that was one of them. >> bill: joe, let me ask you one more question. do you think we ought to be -- if this ambassador -- >> i thought we were talking about free speech. >> bill: hold on a second. the ambassador writes inside his diary that he was fearful for his own life. if he wrote that in his own diary i think it's an obvious conclusion to draw that he had to tell people at the state department, people he worked for, this is banghazi, where i
